Building Blocks Campaign
Welcome to GSIS Building Blocks
To build is to construct objects by putting parts together or to strengthen and improve. German Swiss International School strongly believes in building: from the development of our students’ character and their burgeoning academic achievements, to the establishment of cutting edge educational facilities and the strengthening of the school community.
The GSIS Building Blocks campaign calls on this very same community to shape our future by becoming active builders. In support of the Campus Development Plan, the campaign gives supporters the chance to name their unique ‘’brick’’ plaque which will form part of a brightly coloured, eye-catching wall at the Peak Campus – a true testament to the GSIS community’s school spirit and generosity.
How we build education at GSIS
What are the essential Building Blocks of German Swiss International School?
- An Academically Rigorous Learning Experience
- Modern and Versatile School Facilities
- Multilingualism and Multiculturalism
- Vibrant, Caring, and Creative Community
All four of these aspects are the rock that makes GSIS a centre of educational excellence. GSIS paves the way for each child: laying down a firm foundation in Kindergarten, setting up strong frameworks in Primary, and constructing pillars of knowledge in Secondary. Furthermore, the school plays a significant role in preparing young creative minds to attend the world’s most prestigious universities and our very own Business College. We need you to be the builders of our school to play a part in upholding these standards. Make every Building Block count for the future of our students!

Community lies at the heart of German Swiss International School and manifests itself in many aspects of school life. Our students connect with one another from their very first days in Kindergarten and Primary and many build strong friendships that remain throughout their time at GSIS and extend past graduation into their years as internationally-networked alumni.
From its very beginnings, our school has been shaped by its families, volunteers and staff – all of whom have worked with a shared vision of making GSIS the very best school imaginable for the benefit of its students. Today, we see this embodied in our Boards and Committees, the KPR system, and the countless hours dedicated by parents, teachers and support staff to driving GSIS towards a bright future.
